Default DSE master cylinder uses a 37 degree flare???

The directions I have for my DSE master/booster combo say to use a 37 degree inverted flare with the 3/16" line to metric fittings provided for the master cylinder lines. I'm confuse...is this a typo and should I be using a 45 degree double flare like the rest of my lines?

Jlwdvm,
Sorry no one has replied yet.
I don't know the answer, but recommend you call DSE tech support and question them. They are good and when it comes to brakes, I would call them for sure.

Did that....twice. They said the directions were right, one guy even said I could use a 37 degree single flare?!?!? I wasn't too confident in the info I received from the DSE tech line. I ended up buying a 37 double flare die set for my Eastwood flare kit and did 37 flares. No leaks.

I think by 37* single flare, he probably meant AN fitting. A lot of guys will use AN fittings through out the brake system.

The whole debate that nobody seems to be able to answer is:what is the flare in the master cylinder? The kit comes with metric to 3'16" line adapters....but what is the actual flare inside the master?

The instructions definitely say to use a 37* inverted flare
